CoFounder & CEO at Haptik Inc.
SUPER ANGEL investor
Aakrit Vaish, as the CoFounder and CEO of Haptik, played a pioneering role in the inception of conversational AI, leading the charge since 2013. Today, Haptik stands as one of the globe's most prominent entities in this field, maintaining a strong presence in New York, Los Angeles, Mumbai, Singapore, and catering to over 100 major enterprise clients including industry giants like KFC, Samsung, CocaCola, Oyo Rooms, Kotak Life, and Dream11. A watershed moment arrived in April 2019 when Reliance Industries acquired a majority shareholding in Haptik for $100 million, solidifying its status as one of the world's most valuable AI companies. Aakrit's strategic vision has been instrumental in driving Haptik's ascent to global prominence. Beyond Haptik, Aakrit's influence extends into the startup ecosystem. As an investor, he has actively backed ventures in the domains of consumer technology and B2B SaaS. His portfolio includes noteworthy investments such as Unacademy (valued at over $200 million), Third Wave Coffee, Dataweave, Haikujam (backed by Lightbox), Flatchat (acquired by Commonfloor in 2014), Tookitaki, Dil Mil, Ayopop, iON Energy, and Talent Litmus, among others.
